iWeb Devify Pre-Made Websites Installation Guide

iWeb Devify Pre-Made Websites Installation Guide

Our niche websites were specifically designed for those with no experience in web development and internet marketing to make money right out of the box. These 6 niches were heavily researched and determined to be the best niches out there with an abundant amount of high paying affiliate programs. We’ve even taken this one step further by adding these affiliate programs right into the website which is one less step you’ll have to worry about.

We’ve completely modernized all of our WordPress websites to offer all of the following: mobile responsive theme, articles with images, plugins pre-configured, high paying affiliate programs, search engine optimization, optimized landing pages, social media icons for easy sharing, and a dedicated theme options panel allowing you to make simple changes to the appearance, design and options.

Below is a step-by-step guide on how to install iWeb Devify blogs on your server with the new cPanel interface and the latest version 8.0 Backup Buddy plugin. The whole process will only take you about 10 minutes and is quite simple, even if you have no experience.

We’ve simplified things and divided the entire installation process into three parts which are addressed in detail below:

  • Part 1: Upload Installation Files
  • Part 2: Create MySQL Database
  • Part 3: Run the Installation Script

For this guide, you will need to make sure your webhost uses cPanel as control panel and is already installed. Also, you’ll need your own domain with the nameservers already pointed to your server (discussed in detail below).

Make sure your domain name is pointed to your webhost. Here’s a quick guide on hot to configure your domain’s DNS: How to Point a Domain to Your Webhost

If you chose to only purchase one domain, you can use an Addon Domain or a subdomain, but make sure that addon domain or subdomain is working. For beginner’s read this guide: How to Add a Domain or Subdomain

WARNING: DO NOT install WordPress on the destination server. The importbuddy script will install all files, including WordPress. To avoid any conflicts, it’s highly recommended to delete any previous installation of WordPress before installing a new one.

PART 1. UPLOAD INSTALLATION FILES

1. On your computer, unzip the blog package you downloaded given to you free from iWeb Devify. You may use WinZip or WinRAR, but typically a free WinZip version comes pre-installed in most Windows based computers.

2. After unzipping, open the folder “Files To Upload“. This is where the actual “installation files” are placed.

The “Files to Upload” folder contains 3 files:

  • index.php
  • importbuddy.php
  • backup file“.

The backup file is usually in a “backup-blogname-full-some78ue.zip” filename format and in this demo it is titled “backup-wealth-full-5njvja4v4z.zip“.

You’re going to upload all 3 files ,but at this time DO NOT unzip the backup file.

3. You can then log into your cpanel using this url format: http://yourdomain.com/cpanel. Feel free to use your favorite FTP software but for this guide we’ll use the built-in cPanel uploader which is often easier to navigate for newbies.

The url login address:

The login box:

Note: Make sure your domain’s DNS is already pointed to your webhost for this setup to work properly.

4. Once logged in to your cPanel dashboard find the “File Manager” icon. Click it.

5. On the new window, you now see the File Manager Page.

6. On the left panel click public_html.

7. After clicking, you’ll see a blank canvass on the right panel.

NOTE: If this is a newly purchased web hosting account, it’s normal to see some extra html and CSS files automatically included by the host. You can delete these extra files as they’re not needed for anything moving forward.

8. Click the “Upload” tool located on the top menu of the cPanel File Manager.

9. On the new window, click “Select File“. Navigate to where the “Files to Upload” folder is located on your computer then select the 3 files one by one.

Or simply drag and drop the 3 installation files from your computer.

     10. Wait for files to get uploaded. While waiting proceed to Part 2 MySQL creation.

PART 2: CREATE MYSQL DATABASE

1. Go back to your cPanel homepage.

2. Find “MySQL® Database Wizard” under Databases box.

3. Click the “ MySQL® Database Wizard” link. You will be redirected to the MySQL® Database Wizard page.

4. Open the “Installation Notes” file included with the blog package you downloaded.

Use the installation notes to record your database info as you create your MySQL. You will be using this info when running the installation script on Part 3 below.

5. Now, enter your desired database name then click “Next Step” button.

Tip 1: Your database name should be something that will help you distinguish one database fro another, especially if you have already created several or planning to create more databases on your web hosting account. This will definitely be the case if you’re intending on installing all 6 websites onto the same server which is highly recommended.

Now that we’ve already created a database name, our installation note should be:

Importbuddy password: iwebdevify195
Install URL: http://blog.iwebdevify.com/importbuddy.php
Db Name: pms8gr07_mynewblog98475
Db Username:
Db Password:

IMPORTANT! Always include your cPanel login username followed by underscore (_) when writing down your database name and username.

My cPanel login username in this demo is pms8gr07. So my full database name is this:

pms8gr07 + _ + mynewblog98475 = pms8gr07_mynewblog98475

Some hosts, however, like GoDaddy don’t require cPanel username prefix so your database name would be just mynewblog98475 without the pms8gr07_ prefix.

6. On Step 2, enter your desired database username. Up to 7 characters is allowed but some webhosts will require 8 or more. Mine here is boom123

7. Click the “Password Generator” button. A password generator box will appear. Click Generate Password button to create a new database password.

8. Copy your generated password into your installation notes. Copy also your database username. Now, your final installation note should look like this one:

Importbuddy password: iwebdevify195
Install URL: http://blog.iwebdevify.com/importbuddy.php
Db Name: pms8gr07_mynewblog98475
Db Username: pms8gr07_boom123
Db Password: BGDVIop}a+MW

9. On the Password Generator box, check “I have copied this password in a safe place.” then click “Use Password” button.

10. Next, click “Create User” button.

11. On the next step (Step 3: Add user to the database.), check “ALL PRIVILEGES” tick box. This will automatically check all other tick boxes under it.

12. Scroll down then click “Next Step” button.

13. That’s it. MySQL creation done!

PART 3. RUN INSTALLATION SCRIPT

1. Open the “Installation Notes” you created in Part 2 (MySQL creation).

2. On your favorite browser, copy the installation URL to the address bar then hit “Enter” key on your computer keyboard.

3. Enter Import Buddy password then click Authenticate button.

NOTE: The import Buddy password is already included with the “Installation Notes” file.

4. Now, on “Step 1: Select Backup to Restore“, click “Restore Backup” button.

5. Next, on “Step 3: Database Settings“, manually enter your database settings.

For “Database Server” and “Database Prefix” just click the arrow to copy setting from old server to new server.

So from:

To this:

For Database Name, Database User, and Database Password just copy and paste the info from the notepad list you created in Part 2 (MySQL creation).

6. Click “Next Step” button.

7. On “Step 5: Site URL Settings“, review your new URL (WordPress address) then simply click “Next Step” button.

8. On “Step 6: Verify Site and Finish“, click your blog url and check if site is working.

9. If site is working with no error/s, click “Finish Cleanup” to delete installation files and other mess.

10. That’s it. Congratulations for successfully installing your new blog/site.

CONCLUSION

The installation process is relatively simple and straightforward. By the time you get to the 6th install, you’ll feel like a pro and won’t need to consult this guide anymore. This in-itself can turn into another revenue option for you as we offer more niche blogs for sale where we allow you to resale later to turn a profit.
